Yeah, especially at the gym. I see these young guys trying to imitate me, clearly thinking since I'm old and they are young, it has to be a breeze, only to struggle or even sprain themselves. And honestly, it doesn't bother me.
People have copied my musical taste, clothing style, haircut, reading tastes, ideologies, you name it. In high school it annoyed me, but then I realized that they're all just trying way too hard to look cool. What still annoys me though is when they copy you and then they act like they are avant-garde and trendsetters.
Yeah, I think it's pathetic. They lack originality so they go around taking credit for others' genuine originality. It's not flattering, people just say that so they don't look as pitiful. It's not cool if you have to swagger jack someone else because you don't feel like you're in the same realm of awesome
